Finance for non-financial managers

On our finance for non-financial manager training course delegates are given the opportunity to understand and interpret company accounts.

  • What do the key line items really mean?
  • How do the accounts link together?
  • What’s interesting about what’s buried in the notes?
  • What are the key ratios?
  • How could the statements be used in investment analysis?

On this program course delegates bring a set of financial statements to class, review the statements with their class mates and the course tutor, and use company accounts to generate meaningful information right from the start of training

The course is conducted in a work shop format, with the emphasis on “learning by doing”.

Much of the learning occurs in exercises and group discussion where participants are encouraged to share experiences, apply new-found knowledge and bench mark best practice across their peers.

Although grounded in accounting and financial theory, the focus of the program is on the practical and pragmatic application of concepts to real-life situations.

Learning points are illustrated using real case studies and examples from real life.
